Emmanuel leader Alain Emerson glorifies Jesuit founder and Counter Reformation leader, Ignatius of Loyola

The lead pastor of the Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area, Alain Emerson, has glorified the founder of the notorious Roman Catholic Jesuit Order, Ignatius of Loyola, and led his church’s followers in following his practices.

On this page we have previously described Alain Emerson as Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, due to his repeated association with Romanism.

This is a moniker he has well and truly earned.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has previously spoken in a Roman Catholic chapel in Belfast (the scene of which is pictured below) as part of the ecumenical ‘Four Corners Festival’, at which he endorsed the ecumenical, anti-Christian, ritualistic, Taizé style of prayer.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has organised an ecumenical prayer initiative called ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ under the auspices of the 24-7 Prayer movement, a grouping whose leader, Pete Greig, is helping the Roman Catholic Church in Austria gain more followers.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has spoken at a meeting of the ecumenical Ballymena Church Members Forum, a group comprised of Romanists and whose meetings are advertised in the Roman Catholic parish bulletin for Ballymena.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has endorsed the ecumenical ‘Heal The Land’ prayer initiative, which a Roman Catholic group also endorsed, with a video featuring its leader encouraging Roman Catholics to attend being uploaded on the ‘Heal The Land’ facebook page.

All of those things were disgraceful in their own right for the leader of a supposedly God-exalting church to be engaging in.

However, this latest act of Popery, and it can be called nothing else, is by far the most grievous and anti-Scriptural activity he has engaged in yet.

In fact, we would go so far as to say it is the single worst act of betrayal of true Christianity we have came across yet on this page. It is truly outrageous.

In the meeting, which he held on Sunday night past, 4th November in the Lurgan Emmanuel Church (there are two, the other being in the nearby town of Portadown), he led his followers in practising the ‘Examen’, a prayer ritual devised by Ignatius of Loyola.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson also extolled the virtues of Ignatius of Loyola, who is the founder and original leader of the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits, the order which led the Counter Reformation under the Pope’s authority.

This is the group which sought to snuff out the light of the gospel which God had gloriously unveiled through Martin Luther and many others during the Protestant Reformation.

They did it by any means possible, and the Jesuits were leading figures in the bloody Spanish Inquisition, in which untold millions of Protestants, Jews and Muslims were tortured, maimed and murdered.

It is noteworthy that Bertrand Russell, a Noble Prize winning author and historian, in his ‘A History of Western Philosophy’, stated this of the Jesuits: “Protestant success, at first amazingly rapid, was checked mainly as a result of Loyola’s creation of the Jesuit order.”

So this is the grouping which, responding to the rise of true Christianity, ie Protestantism, acted to ensure the enlightenment of precious, never-dying souls, was restricted as much as possible, and they were noted to be successful in doing so, and thus leading millions of souls to hell.

And Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is teaching his church’s adherents to follow in their founder’s footsteps.

During his sermon (which you can hear online by visiting their website, clicking on the ‘resources’ tab and then on podcasts), he says to his audience about “a dude called Ignatius of Loyola”.

And this is what Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson then says a couple of minutes later about him.

“He had some profound mystical experiences, and it was in those mystical experiences that he wrote what’s called his ‘Spiritual Practices’.

“Now the reason I want to say this is, I feel that we are having some profound times with Jesus these days and I think there’s more profound times with Jesus to come, where He wants to completely undo us with His love.”

We’ll just cut into Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s spiel here and say not to worry if you don’t understand what the previous paragraph means, because it means nothing. It’s gibberish intended to sound deep and spiritual so as to impress those listening, but it really is as deep as a teaspoon of water.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson continues: “And when that happens you have to steward that well and you have to have certain practices in place that don’t take that for granted. That allow us to engage with that and train others to do that and this is what Ignatius is doing.

“He has encountered something fresh of the Lord.

“It’s through him that when he goes to university in Paris and he starts to gather a few friends and they start to pray and get passionate for Jesus together that they start this, what we know as the Jesuits, or the Society of Jesus, which has gone on to send missionaries all over the world.”

We’ll just point out that at no stage has Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson stated that the Jesuits are a Roman Catholic order, and at no point does he even use the words “Roman Catholic”. This is quite deliberate and it becomes clear this is quite deliberate with his next breath.

He says: “So remember this is probably round the time of the Reformation, so they’re all trying to work it out.”

They’re all trying to work it out?!? Is that Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s assessment of the Reformation period?

The Reformation was not about “trying to work it out”, the Reformation was when the shackles of Rome’s false gospel of salvation by works and devotion to her was thrown off gloriously throughout large chunks of Europe. It was God moving mightily to the saving of countless precious souls.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson also says there it was “probably round the time of the Reformation”. He knows rightly that it was or he wouldn’t have mentioned it in the first place. In his sermon he points out the year Ignatius of Loyola was born so he knows exactly when he was active.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson continues further: “There’s been huge problems with the church of that day. The Reformation has been a reaction to that but also within that there was certain moments and certain men like this who wanted the real thing, who wanted Jesus more than anything else pushed into his heart, pushed into his presence, were changed and transformed and led others in it.”

Ignatius of Loyola “wanted the real thing?” Ignatius of Loyola determinedly did not want the real thing as his mission from the Pope was to crush the doctrine of salvation by faith alone and all who believed in it.

And so on the heresy goes from Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, as he says: “I love the fact that then he writes the ‘Spiritual Practices’.

“Isn’t it brilliant in that time of, you know, history, that people kind of argued over things like how to become like Jesus. Today we argue over theology, what we believe and what we don’t believe. In that day people argued over what was the best way or practice, or set of exercises to become like Jesus.

“That would be a far better argument, wouldn’t it? It would be a far better argument to go, well, is it this way or is it that way? That was the argument, and while it mightn’t have been nice all the time, at least it was about how to become like Jesus, not about who’s right.”

The Reformation period was precisely about theology and what was right and what was wrong.

The Bible clearly states salvation is “not of works” (Ephesians 2:9) and that is the principle on which the Reformers stood.

Rome states that any who believes in the doctrine of salvation by faith alone are to be “anathema”, pronouncing their curses on such as heretics.

The Reformation was absolutely about what we believe.

Rome had no interest in being like Jesus, it was only interested in its own superiority and hegemony throughout Europe.

And to say “it mightn’t have been nice all the time” is not even an understatement, it’s a disgraceful and wilful effort to mislead his followers.

The Jesuits figured prominently in the murder and maiming of millions during the centuries-long Inquisition held by the Roman Catholic Church.

They struck out against true Christianity and were famed for their torture of those who disagreed with the false religion of Rome.

Yet Alain Emerson wants his followers to copy the ‘Spiritual Practices’ of that bloodthirsty order’s founder. He says “he loves the fact” that Ignatius of Loyola wrote them.

These ‘Spiritual Practices’ contain the worship of Mary, the reciting of the ‘Hail Mary’ as well as instructing people to do the rosary. Perhaps this will be next at Emmanuel Church in Lurgan and Portadown?

Has Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson been preparing the way with all his ecumenical conduct to allow such practices to take place?

He certainly has attendees of Emmanuel taking part in the spiritual practices of one of the most evil men who ever lived.

Perhaps a hint of his admiration of Jesuitry can be seen through his Twitter posting from 21 August, where he quotes a noted Jesuit priest, called Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured, below). Interestingly, the same Papist was quoted by the preacher of error, Bishop Michael Curry, in his wedding ‘sermon’ during the marriage ceremony of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The worship of Mary is nowhere taught in the Bible. In fact, the Bible is clear we are to “have no other gods” in Exodus 20:3.

1 Timothy 2:5 says: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

We don’t go through Mary to get to God, despite what Ignatius of Loyola claimed.

Indeed, on a website called ‘Jesuits in Ireland’, his devotion to Mary is clearly stated.

In an article entitled ‘Mary – How she made a new man of Ignatius’, it says: “As for the founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, he had such a lasting devotion to Our Lady that we could say every month was Mary’s month for Ignatius. Mary played a vital role in the calling and vocation of Ignatius. Long before he was ordained a priest or founded the Jesuits, he had already developed a deep affection for the Blessed Virgin Mary”.

Let us state clearly, this is from an article written by Jesuits celebrating Ignatius of Loyola. Mary worship is a despicable heresy and rejection of God’s Word. But it is in the ‘Spiritual Practices’ of Ignatius of Loyola, the practices Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is imploring his followers to adhere to.

If you or anyone you know is caught up in the church ran by this man, we implore you to withdraw from it immediately and for you to implore everyone you know involved in it to do the same.

He is like those in Matthew 15:7-9, of whom Jesus says: “Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

Teaching such falsehoods makes someone a false teacher, such as were warned of in 2 Peter 2:1-3.

Those verses say: “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”

Is not Alain Emerson privily bringing in damnable heresies? How many people in Emmanuel Church on Sunday night were wise to his deceits? We would venture to say there were very few, if any.

Alain Emerson carefully refused to say the words “Roman Catholic” throughout. He deliberately misled those listening about the Reformation and Loyola’s inextricable links to opposing it. This is because he knows there would have been those present most likely for whom alarm bells would have been going off.

Mind you, the word Jesuit should surely have been enough to sound alarm bells in people’s minds. The current Pope is a Jesuit, something which was dwelled upon at the time the current Pope took over that blasphemous position.

But those in attendance are the many following his “pernicious ways” and this is leading those who follow it to one place – damnation.

What a frightful thought that is.

We would encourage everyone reading this to go back to our Facebook page and share this to warn as many as possible of the dreadful heresy being preached in that church to try to pull the attendees as brands from the burning out of the clutches of this grievous false prophet.

This is an urgent matter, and one not to be delayed upon, for the precious souls of men and women are at stake.

Ezekiel 12:21-28 highlights how we don’t know when God will move in judgment against those prophesying lies and those who choose to believe them.

“And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, what is that proverb that ye have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth? Tell them therefore, Thus saith the Lord God; I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision. For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel. For I am the Lord: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord God. Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he seeth is for many days to come, and he prophesieth of the times that are far off. Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord God.”

Let us not be too late in our warnings to those who are under the influence of church leaders teaching such damnable heresies as the practices of an evil, bloodthirsty, Mary-worshipping, Papist.

Adultery and apostasy: Why the Royal wedding was an affront to God

1 Corinthians 7:10-11: “And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.”

The Royal wedding on Saturday past has been the subject of much of the world’s attention over the past week.

It is estimated that just under two billion people worldwide watched the wedding, or around one in four people in the entire world, saw Prince Harry, sixth in line to the Great British throne, and American actress Meghan Markle tie the knot, as they say.

Much has been made over trivial matters, such as the bride’s dress, her hair, her make-up, her father’s presence (or indeed absence, as it turned out).

Indeed, the bride’s ethnic heritage was repeatedly raised as being a notable factor in the whole debate, though of course, and this is perhaps the only occasion in this article where we are in tune with modern politically correct dogma, Meghan Markle’s racial background is utterly irrelevant.

However, the key issue at play is that Meghan Markle, regardless of the pomp and ceremony and the (worldly-speaking) litany of important public figures in attendance, was not in the eyes of God and in the light of His Word, legally able to marry Prince Harry.

This is an adulterous union.

Our passage at the top of this article says: “Let not the wife depart from her husband: But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband”.

These are not merely the words of Paul, the earthly author of the book of Corinthians, these are the words of God, as God the Holy Spirit led and inspired each earthly penman as they wrote.

For double the effect, Paul even writes: “I command, yet not I, but the Lord”.

That’s pretty clear, isn’t it?

From reading various reports of Meghan Markle’s previous marriage to a film producer called Trevor Engelson, which lasted around two years, it appears Meghan Markle was the principal driver in the separation, posting her wedding and engagement rings back to her husband.

It was also reported that in legal papers concerning the divorce proceedings, the cause stated for the separation was “irreconcilable differences”.

We’ll place that, once more, in the light of the Scripture passage we have already cited. It says: “…if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband…”

As they have legally stated their differences are “irreconcilable”, then it is plain what God says Meghan Markle must do – “let her remain unmarried”.

However, there she was, on Saturday past, in front of one quarter of the world’s population but, most importantly, before God, utterly rejecting and ignoring God’s Word.

Indeed, the Arch-apostate of Canterbury, Justin Welby (pictured, above), gave her a chance to rectify that matter when, shortly before the vows were made, he said: “The vows you are about to take are to be made in the presence of God, who is Judge of all and knows all the secrets of our hearts. Therefore, if either of you knows a reason why you may not lawfully marry you must declare it now.”

That was met with silence.

She then vowed that, “forsaking all others” she would “be faithful to him as long as [they] both shall live”.

That is a right and noble thing to vow. However, she has vowed to do it before with another, and cannot, in the eyes of God, perform those vows again in her circumstances.

She later stated that “in the presence of God” she made her vows.

What a dreadful disregard and disrespect for God that she said such a thing!

There are numerous other verses pertaining to this matter, and several are straight from the mouth of Jesus during His time on earth.

Mark 10:12: “And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.”

Matthew 5:32: “But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.”

Not only is Meghan Markle an adulteress, but Prince Harry is, by the Word of God, an adulterer.

Please pray for our Royal Family, that God will move among them and convict them of their departure from His Word.

Let us not forget that Prince William, who will most likely be King of Great Britain one day, appeared on the front cover of a gay magazine, called ‘Attitude’ just under two years ago.

In an article within that magazine, Prince William hit out against the bullying of homosexuals, and certainly bullying is wrong, regardless of the target.

However, he went on to say: “You should be proud of the person you are and you have nothing to be ashamed of.”

While our probable future King might say that, the King of Kings takes a very different view.

Leviticus 18:22: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

Romans 1:22-27 says: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

Rulers are to be a “terror” to evil works (Romans 13:3), not an endorser of that which God has condemned as abominable and vile.

The subject of homosexuality brings us to the false prophet who was allowed to pollute the pulpit of St George’s Chapel, though of course the Arch-apostate of Canterbury, Justin Welby, was more than capable of doing that by himself.

Rev Michael Curry (pictured, below) took the stage, for that is what it was to him, and preached a message of absolute drivel.

His constant prattling about love and then fire was in no way faithful to the God ordained principle of ministry to preach “all the counsel of God” (Acts 20:27).

Had the fire he mentioned been in relation to the fires of hell (Revelation 21:8) and that unrepentant sinners will be there for all eternity, then he would have been on a better path.

However, Rev Michael Curry is well advanced down the broad path, which leads to destruction, and he’s taking plenty with him.

For he and his church have taken a disgracefully ungodly attitude to homosexuality, not only of those in its pews but those in its pulpits and highest offices.

Rev Michael Curry is Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, the US sister body of the Anglican Church.

The Episcopal Church authorised the appointment of an openly gay bishop, Gene Robinson in 2003, and gave its backing to gay marriage in 2015.

Rev Michael Curry also has stated his support for the madness of allowing so-called “transgender” people to use whichever public toilets they so choose and publicly stressed his welcome of homosexuals into his church.

Defending his God defying stance following condemnation from other members of the worldwide Anglican Communion, he said: “Our commitment to be an inclusive church is based on our belief that the outstretched arms of Jesus on the cross are a sign of the very love of God reaching out to us all.

“For fellow disciples of Jesus in our church who are gay or lesbian, this will bring more pain. For many who have felt and been rejected by the church because of who they are, for many who have felt and been rejected by families and communities, our church opening itself in love was a sign of hope.”

While Rev Michael Curry’s church will not reject people because of who they are, God will reject people because of who they are.

If you are not saved, Jesus tells us in Matthew 7:23: “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

It is unsurprising that the woolly message of Rev Michael Curry, who also referenced a Jesuit priest, the group which led the murderous Counter Reformation, during his sermon, was praised so fulsomely by two notorious ecumenists, we wrote about just last week, Emmanuel Church leader Alain Emerson and Rev Steve Stockman, minister of Fitzroy Presbyterian Church.

Both took to Twitter on several occasions during the wedding ceremony to stress their delight at the message of this apostate.

However, while these men will not show their followers the way of salvation, there is a remedy for sin that all may receive, and that is God’s Salvation through the precious blood of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 9:22 tells us that “without shedding of blood is no remission” of sins.

1 John 1:9 says: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Dear reader, look not to Royal figures in this earth, but instead look to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Hebrews 12:2: “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Enniskillen Church of Ireland service celebrates Jesuit priest and endorses prayer to saints

The Church of Ireland in Enniskillen has given its seal of approval to Rome’s corrupt system of saints, to whom Rome teaches you should pray, by holding a service celebrating a man the Roman Catholic Church is in the process of making a saint.

‘Blessed’ John Sullivan was born into the Church of Ireland in Enniskillen but in his adult years, foolishly converted to Rome, eventually joining the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits. For those who are not overly familiar with the process of Romanist canonisation, and we hope there are many, the title of ‘Blessed’ is one rung below being a full-blown saint.

Prior to this, John Sullivan would have been known as ‘Venerable’, and Romanists would have been encouraged to pray to him to make intercession on their behalf. Enniskillen Church of Ireland is endorsing this by holding a meeting in his honour. What blasphemous nonsense!

We pray to God through Jesus Christ and none other. 1 Timothy 2:5: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

Let us remind readers that the Jesuit Order ‘Blessed’ John Sullivan joined is the bloodthirsty mob which led the ‘Inquisition’ over a period of several centuries in which untold millions of Protestants (along with Muslims and Jews) were murdered. We dealt with that evil organisation in a previous post regarding St Anne’s Church of Ireland Cathedral in Belfast inviting a Jesuit into its midst in February.

And it is a man who joined that Order, with its vile past and whose express foundational purpose was to lead the Counter Reformation and drag millions back into the darkness of Rome, that Enniskillen Cathedral (St Macartin’s) sought to honour with this service on Sunday, 15 April.

What an outrage!

Conducting the service was the Very Reverend Kenneth Hall (pictured, top), the Dean of Clogher, and he had with him his ecumenical buddy, ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly, Parish Priest of St Michael’s Roman Catholic Church, Enniskillen. The pair are joined at the hip, and this is something which, in the will of the Lord, we plan to address at another time.

Among the apostate Protestants named as being in attendance were Most Reverend Dr Michael Jackson, the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin and the Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher Right Eejit John McDowell (pictured, below), whose utterly shameful conduct we have previously covered. Prayer was also offered at one point by Rev Canon Desmond Kingston, another compromiser by his very presence, this compounded by his participation.

No ecumenical meeting would be complete without plenty more emissaries of Papal deceit, and St Macartin’s Cathedral was filled to the brim with them.

The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, was there. Monsignor Joseph McGuinness, Diocesan Administrator of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Clogher, was there. So, too, was ‘Father’ Tom Clayton, former Provincial of the Jesuit Order in Ireland. The Provincial is the leader of the Jesuits. So the most senior member of the organisation which has its mission straight from the Pope and which seeks to snuff out the light of the gospel was welcomed with open arms into a so-called Protestant church. He also offered up a prayer in the service. As we have regularly stated, it is a most relevant question to ask – to whom was the prayer addressed? Was it to God? Or was it to Mary or one of the saints that Rome corruptly teaches you can pray to? Perhaps it was even to ‘Blessed’ John Sullivan. How despicable an indictment of the Church of Ireland that this question even needs to be asked!

All these high profile figures within the Church of Ireland and Roman Catholic Church were part of the gathering in St Macartin’s Cathedral, but was God part of the number? Most assuredly not.

The Bible says in Matthew 18:20: “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” However, these people were not gathered in His name, they were gathered to celebrate themselves and to celebrate man. God has rejected that meeting.

They will claim that they are gathered to honour God, but their hypocrisy is like that mentioned in Isaiah 29:13: “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:”

The precepts of man were stamped all over that meeting. God hates the Roman Catholic Church because it is a blasphemous pagan corruption of how He has ordained He should be worshipped. God hates the works of apostasy in so-called Protestant churches because they have sold out their goodly heritage for fellowship with Rome.

Remarkably, and without a hint of irony, when giving his address at this meeting, Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin Michael Jackson said the words: “God is not mocked”.

Absolutely, Archbishop. However, that is exactly what you are striving to do with that mockery of a service you so heartily endorsed.

However, while you as a fool look to make a mockery of God, He will hold you in contempt.

Psalm 2:2-4: “The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.”

This apostate Archbishop Michael Jackson continued to grieve God by saying the meeting was “a glorious opportunity” and said there had been “respect across embedded sectarianisms” demonstrated by so-called Protestants attending the service of Beatification (making him ‘Blessed’) of John Sullivan and by the “Jesuit family” being present at that abomination of a service in Enniskillen.

Let us tell Archbishop Michael Jackson, there is nothing sectarian about wanting to prevent the Protestant faith, which is true Biblical Christianity, from being corrupted by the lies and deceits of Rome.

Next to talk so as to hear himself was the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, during which he thanked the Bishop of Clogher, the Right Eejit John McDowell for his invitation “and the congregation at St Macartin’s Cathedral for their welcome”.

This is the consequence of letting heretics into the ministry as they lead their congregations to the point where they are glad to see Romanists in their pulpits.

God will not let that go unpunished.

Ezekiel 33 is a chapter we have referred to on a number of occasions at ‘Protestant Revival’ and we will repeat it once more. After all, we are following the example of Paul when he was inspired by the Holy Ghost to write in Philippians 3:1: “To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.”

In Ezekiel 33 a fearsome warning is laid down to the watchmen, or spiritual leaders, of the people and the solemn responsibility they have in their role. Those who fail to fulfil their duties will have the blood of sinners they’ve led astray on their hands.

Verses 2-6 read: “Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”

Of course, many in the congregation at St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen don’t want to be warned, they would rather have repeated digs at pages like this for trying to warn them of the danger they are in. They want to have their ears tickled rather than their hearts challenged and their souls saved.

They share the refrain of those in Isaiah 30:10: “Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits”.

We pray that God will cause the congregation of St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen, in particular those who have castigated this witness, to read this message and we are making a plea to them to turn from this apostasy, tell the rascal in the pulpit to get out and turn wholeheartedly to God.

We would that you would consider your latter end. Jeremiah 5:31 asks the question with a clear gospel application: “The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”

God is calling for sinners to repent. Won’t you listen to Him? Ezekiel 33, which we have already referred to, continues on and shows God offering His mercy to the sinner. Verse 11 reads: “Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God , I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?”

Armagh Church of Ireland and Archbishop Richard Clarke celebrate St Patrick’s Day by leading Protestants to Rome

St Patrick’s Day will be celebrated in true ecumenical style, courtesy of St Patrick’s Church of Ireland cathedral in Armagh.

And the church’s most senior figure will be leading the charge into the arms of Rome.

The Primate of All Ireland and Archbishop of Armagh, The Most Reverend (Most Ecumenical, perhaps) Richard Clarke (pictured) is front and centre in this ecumenical exercise in surrender to Rome.

A host of events have been held this week which we plan to discuss later in this post, but the most significant of these will take place tonight (Friday, 16 March).

The Protestant and Roman Catholic cathedrals in the city will hold a joint vigil at 9pm, led by the Protestant Archbishop of Armagh and the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Armagh, Eamon Martin. It will begin in the St Patrick’s Church of Ireland cathedral before attendees “will then be led by both Archbishops in torchlight to the Roman Catholic Cathedral where Archbishop Martin will conclude with a prayer”.

It paints a very accurate picture of what apostate Protestant clerics are doing up and down the country; leading their flocks stumbling and blinded in the darkness into the grasp of Rome.

It would be a pitiful sight were it not so sinister and disgraceful.

The Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke is leading his flock into the darkness of Romish superstition and deceit.

The Apostle Paul, before he returned to Jerusalem, told those assembled with him who had the oversight of the church to take their role as overseers very seriously and to be sure to feed them. He also warned of the spoilers who would come in, “not sparing the flock”, spoilers from both within and without the church.

Acts 20:27-30 says: “For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.”

Had the Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke done as Paul and declared unto his flock “all the counsel of God” he would not be leading them into the arms of the anti-Christian, pagan system of Rome.

The book of Ezekiel has a stark warning for shepherds who fail to nourish their flock with the Word of God, which is vital for Christian growth.

Ezekiel 34:2-10 says: “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them. And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered. My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them. Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the Lord; As I live, saith the Lord God, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock; Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.”

The neglectful shepherds were guilty of failing to strengthen the diseased or heal the sick. What greater disease and sickness does man have than sin? Jeremiah 17:9 outlines the total depravity of man. It says: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

If a shepherd of a flock fails to warn against sin and instead leads them into sin, God says he will require his flock at their hand. The blood of sinners not warned of their need of salvation through the precious blood of Christ will be on the hands of those neglectful shepherds.

We are told that light refreshments will be served after the event. How lovely! We can all go to hell together over a scone and a nice cup of tea!

Proverbs 23:6-8 warns of the dangers of being taken in by food which is appealing to our appetites. It says: “Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.”

Fellowship with the architects of deceit can only lead to destruction.

As for the rest of the festivities, they started and will finish in the Roman Catholic cathedral, somewhat aptly.

In between times, last night (Thursday) we had the frankly bizarre inclusion of a night of Portuguese traditional music in the Church of Ireland cathedral. What that has to do with St Patrick or salvation is anyone’s guess.

Prior to this evening’s vigil and journey into darkness, the two Archbishops will jointly discuss the legacy of St Patrick and his place in the modern world. Given the Roman Catholic Church tries to fraudulently claim St Patrick as their own, it is really difficult to see how the Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke will be able to have such a discussion without religious compromise. Happily for those in attendance, it appears to be a specialty of his. For an account of the true story of St Patrick, please read this excellent article on the ‘Burning Bush’ website.

We will complete our summary of the week’s events by mentioning the event held on Wednesday night past in The Market Place Theatre in Armagh.

It was brought to us by the Armagh Cathedrals Partnership and was a special event headlined by guest speaker, ‘Father’ Peter McVerry.

Bad enough, of course, that he’s a priest, but to add insult to injury he is a Jesuit priest and has been for over 40 years.

The Jesuits were the special order set up by Rome to lead the Counter Reformation after the glorious light of the gospel had been revealed through Martin Luther and others.

It was a bloodthirsty, barbarous order and while its weapons have been decommissioned, to use a familiar Northern Irish term, its mission remains the same (much like that other murderous mob seeking power in Ulster) – the destruction of Protestantism.

This is what Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke is bringing into Protestant churches, this is what Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke is recommending to his flock, this is what Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke’s legacy will be if he doesn’t repent, to help destroy the fabric of Protestantism in our land.

Please pray that such betrayal of our Protestant heritage will founder, please pray that such betrayal of our Protestant heritage will be utterly cast down, and please pray that Ulster will once more be swept up in a tide of revival blessing that carries all before it into glory.

2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

St Anne’s Cathedral continues efforts to undo Reformation with Jesuit celebration

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” Ephesians 5:11.

The hub of ecumenical folly that is Belfast’s St Anne’s Cathedral is getting set to invite a Jesuit priest into its midst next week.

That’s correct, a Jesuit priest, that unholy order which led the charge of the Counter Reformation, the efforts to snuff out the glorious light of the gospel so wonderfully unveiled through Martin Luther and others 500 years ago.

The Counter Reformation was led by the notorious Ignatius of Loyola and guess what – the prayer service this Jesuit priest will lead will be focused on the “Ignatian Tradition”, so says the Belfast Telegraph.

The Ignatian Tradition is a most dreadful and unbiblical tradition and it is a shame and disgrace that St Anne’s would welcome a propagator of its lies and deceit into its arms. Those in charge there have emphatically and decidedly ignored the call to reprove the “unfruitful works of darkness” that Jesuitry undoubtedly is.

Of course, it should be no surprise to Christians that St Anne’s would welcome such a character’s doctrine into its building.

In September 2016, St Anne’s appointed a Roman Catholic priest as an ‘ecumenical canon’ and just last autumn the cathedral played host to a ‘pet blessing’ service, showing St Anne’s doesn’t actually know what it believes.

The cathedral also is inextricably linked with the Corrymeela Community, which is a sort of ecumenical nirvana, full of airy fairy quasi Christianity which pats itself on the back for being so accepting of all faiths.

The Corrymeela Community is in fact jointly hosting the event with St Anne’s Cathedral, which is taking place as part of a series of prayer services during Lent.

First up is this Papist propaganda on Friday, 23 February, led by the province coordinator of ecumenism, ‘Father’ Tom Leyden.

After that follows a female Presbyterian ‘minister’, the ‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban (1 Timothy 2:12), who is in turn followed by Padraig O Tuama, the leader of the Corrymeela Community.

Two misguided Church of Ireland clerics, the Dean’s Vicar at St Anne’s, Canon Mark Niblock and the Dean of Armagh, Very Rev Gregory Dunstan, will bring this whole exercise in religious futility and compromise to a close.

So there are utterly inappropriate speakers galore on offer, but surely the worst has to be this exhibition of Jesuitry, the very antithesis and definition of opposition to and hatred of Bible believing Protestantism.

Ignatius of Loyola was “the principal founder and first Superior General of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), a religious Order of the Catholic Church professing direct service to the Pope in terms of mission”.

So this service in St Anne’s Church of Ireland Cathedral, a supposedly God honouring church wedded to Protestant Christian principles, is going to boast a message straight from the Pope himself, “that man of sin, and son of perdition”.

Galatians 1:6-9 takes a very dim view of lies in the name of God, which is all the Roman Catholic Church can deliver. Rome has successfully carried many in so-called Protestant churches away from the truth of the gospel.

Those verses read: “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

God has pronounced his curse on the propagators of error and those involved with St Anne’s Cathedral, sold out to ecumenism, need to take very careful note.

The phrase “let him be accursed” is interesting, as it is a term appropriated by the Roman Catholic Church on its own pronouncements within the Council of Trent. Anyone who dares challenge the lie that the bread and wine doled out during the blasphemous Mass actually turns into the body and blood of Christ has this said of them: “Let him be anathema (or cursed)”.

They say the same for those who rightly state that we are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).

The Jesuits were key figures in the persecution and murder of untold millions of Protestants (along with Muslims and Jews) during the centuries long ‘Inquisition’ it led throughout Europe.

Famous for its use of torture to elicit confessions from accused ‘heretics’, the Inquisition was an evil process led by an evil organisation.

Why would the Church of Ireland invite anyone representing the ‘Ignatian Tradition’ into its arms?

Bertrand Russell, a Noble Prize winning author and historian, in his ‘A History of Western Philosophy’, noted that “Protestant success, at first amazingly rapid, was checked mainly as a result of Loyola’s creation of the Jesuit order.”

So the group that put the brakes on precious, never-dying souls being saved is welcomed with open arms into a church supposed to stand up for the Protestant faith, which is true Biblical Christianity.

It is utter madness.

For anyone still involved with these ecumenical churches, we implore you to “come out from among them and be ye separate” (2 Corinthians 6:17).

A question asked by Elijah on Mount Carmel remains completely relevant today.

1 Kings 18:21: “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.”

The implication was clear; deep down the children of Israel knew the Lord was God, but they were following a false religion. Now is the time to break with these ecumenical false prophets and ecclesiastical deceivers.

Dear reader, please abandon these false teachers and if you are not saved, “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).

1 John 1:9: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
